History of The University of the Arts 



The University of the Arts has evolved from two 
century-old institutons: the Philadelphia College of 
Art and the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts. 

The Philadelphia College of Art (PCA) was formed 
in 1 876 along with the Philadelphia Museum of Art. 
Initially known as the Pennsylvania Museum and 
School of Industrial Art, the institutions were 
established in response to the interest in art and art 
education that was stimulated by the country's 
Centennial Exposition. In 194^ the school became 
known as the Philadelphia Museum School of Art, 
reflecting the expanded programs that trained 
artists in many other areas, including fine arts. The 
school received accreditation in 1959, and in 1964 
separated from the Museum to become the 
Philadelphia College of Art. Today, the Philadelphia 
College of Art and Design of The University of the 
Arts offers curricula in crafts, design, fine arts, and 
art education. 

The performing arts programs of The University of 
the Arts date to 1 870 when three graduates of the 
Conservatory of Leipzig opened one of the first 
European style conservatories of music in America: 
the Philadelphia Musical Academy. The Musical 
Academy became an independent college of music 
in 1 950, granting a Bachelor of Music degree after a 
four-year course of study — one of only eight such 
music colleges in the nation at the time. While still 
offering only a music program, the school changed 
its name to the Philadelphia College of Performing 
Arts (PCPA) in 1976, the first such college in 
Pennsylvania. One year later the former Philadel- 
phia Dance Academy became part of PCPA and in 
1 983 the School of Theater was created, thus 
achieving the college's ideal program of studies: 
dance, music and theater. 

In 1 985, PCA and PCPA joined to become the 
Philadelphia Colleges of the Arts, and a true visual 
and performing arfs university was in its formative 
stages. With its inauguration in 1987, The Univer- 
sity of the Arts is the largest comprehensive 
educational institution of its kind in the nation, 
preparing students for more than 150 professional 
career paths in the visual and performing arts and 
related fields.
